Stampin' Up! Short and Sweet and Brayering make a Birthday card!

I've been on a little bit of a roll making cards these last few days... are you sick of me yet? Anyway, this is another one to add to my stash for birthday cards (I have 7 to make for November!)
This is a fairly basic card, and came together fairly quickly.... I got out a piece of Whisper White, and brayered it using So Saffron, More Mustard and Peach Parfait, then I stamped this cute little stamp (from HOTP) in Staz On. I layered it on some Basic Black and set it aside. The card base is More Mustard, with a layer of So Saffron, which has been run through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot Embossing folder. I then wrapped some satin ribbon around it and tied a bow, and attached it to the card base. I stamped the sentiment, which is from Short and Sweet and then attached the image panel and a few Basic Rhinestones, which I'd coloured using a Sharpie Marker. 
I am entering this into The Paper Players Anything Goes, Fall Challenge. I chose to go with autumn colours, and also the seeds are 'falling....' ok... so, not falling but anyway....
Thanks for dropping by!
And don't forget my Blog Candy!
